Dear Jon,

Today Google launched the Global Impact Challenge. Over the past few months ACEVO has been working very closely with Google and think that this game-changing award will celebrate the innovative work happening within the sector. So we are inviting charities and voluntary organisations to showcase how they would use technology to transform the lives of their beneficiaries. The top four entries of the competition will each receive £500,000 and support to help their project become a reality. A team at Google will announce 10 finalists in mid-May and the public will be invited to vote and donate to their favourite project.

The prestigious panel judging the finalists will be inventor of the Internet Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Mogul Sir Richard Branson and founder and CEO of Forster Communications Jilly Forster. Itís thrilling to know how similar Google and ACEVOís approach is in celebrating innovation - I feel that this is the start of a great corporate friendship.

Applications opened today so apply here for your chance win.

Best wishes and good luck,

Stephen signature
